The downtown art crawl in Franklin on Sept. 6 will feature Brentwood artist Alison Fullerton’s encaustic guitars, deer heads and paintings, according to a release.
The release says Fullerton just returned to Brentwood “after living overseas for three years, where she spent her time traveling and learning about the lives and rituals of the people she met.”
Fullerton paints what she calls visual anthropologies — in the release it says that while anthropologists explore different cultures and people by collecting photographs, she “expresses what she observes in her paintings.”
More about her work:
Alison practices the ancient Egyptian art of encaustic painting using hot pigmented beeswax & resin. She fuses layers of wax using a blowtorch, which yields an unpredictable, yet luminous result. She’s exhibited in Germany, Ireland, Denmark, at the Encaustic Museum in Sante Fe, N.M., and in Provincetown, MA. She’s been awarded artist residencies in the U.S. and Iceland, and was a member of Germany’s oldest artist guild, the Stuttgart Künstlerbund.
Alison’s paintings and “Nashville style” home décor will be at the The Purple Butterfly, 142 2nd Ave North, in downtown Franklin Tennesee on Friday, September 6, 2019 at 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., during the Franklin Art Crawl.
